These are only 4" and are of a lighter gauge than the regular staples I use. I couldn't have used them in my garden, where the soil is loose.

No -- they will rust. Not a problem, since most fabric ground or row covers don't last more than a few years.

Answer: 
As far as I can tell, the staples are coated with something, not sure if it's Zinc galvanized. As to rust resistant, I noted that rust takes effect eventually, especially in wet areas. I used them to keep down a weed fabric and so far it's working for me.

Answer: 
It depends on how wide the weed barrier, and whether you need to overlap or intercut strange angles. I would get at least 20% more to be sure.

Answer: 
You will need a staple on each side of your barrier. So that means 2 for every 2 feet, which equals 1 per foot of barrier. So you need 1100/75 = 15 boxes.
Good luck!

Answer: 
If the whole 110 ft is straight then divide 1100 by 2 to get 550 staples. With 75 in a box that's just over 7 boxes, so use 8 boxes.
If there are curved sections you will probably put the staples closer together around the curves.

Steel Fabric and Sod Staples (75-Pack) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 284.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for soft soil, useless in rocky clay soil. This work great anywhere you have "good" soil. Good value and work well holding the landscaping fabric down. Easy to put in with a hammer. However, in Portland, we have mostly clay-like soil and these will bend and not penetrate dense clay. You'll need something much sturdier than these, like stakes, for that soil type.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good price, decent product The staples worked ok...They worked good if the soil was normal, but it soil was hard they would bend when using a rubber mallet. It would potentially help if at least part of the staple had serrated edges to give it a better grip in the soil.

Laid over two hundred feet of fabric interwoven with 40 or so shrubs. These staples made it much easier to control the plastic and keep it in place before the mulch was applied. Even though they appear sharp, I did have some trouble getting them to go through two or three layers of the fabric where it overlapped. However that varied according to the fabric used. Otherwise a useful product, though a tad expensive.

I am using these steel fabric staples for my Christmas lights I use rope lights to surround our lawn and in the landscape around the house. They are perfect to hold the rope lights straight and they will not get moved around with kids or animals in the yard. They are a great product for several uses other than to hold down fabric cloth. Be creative and find other uses for products that you carry, this is why I always shop at Home Depot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor presentation, lack of info Stakes were much smaller gage wire than similar product from Ace. All shrink wrapped so it waa not possible to check before purchase. Box is larger than box from Ace but contains 75 small wimpy stakes instead of 100 more sturdy ones that I got from Ace.

I bought these to help secure netting and wire to prevent my overactive Squirrels from digging up my young plants. I have tried other methods but have had to resort to brute force. In addition I use the staples to anchor restrainer rings around my rose plants to prevent the extra heavy mulch from touching the bushes. They also do an excellent job of anchoring freeze protection cloth over my first year ground cover plants. They are just bout ideal size, gage, and flexibility. Certainly saves a lot of time over making your own. Hope that this helps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the Job I purchased these steel stables to hold down landscape fabric for an area of about 70 feet by 10 feet. The stables worked well proving me time to lay the fabric for the entire area prior to the installation of a drip irrigation system. I was surprised that my two cats didn't try to tear the fabric after installation. I recommend this product. These stables worked well with several different brands of landscape weed blocker fabric.

Arrived as stated. This product is hands down better than the other Home Improvement store. I got stuck buying some from the other place for the same price. It was a terrible ordeal. This product could be installed without using a rubber mallet. Both products got bent wrong on occasion, but this product would straighten back up for reuse.My hands were in severe distress with the other product, even with the rubber mallet. So, this product able to use with, or without a rubber mallet. Able to fix flubs and reuse. Hands not swollen, and sore at the end of the project-PRICELESS! Started using this brand 11 years ago. When I dig up new areas to plant I will find some that are rusted. But, they were still holding the landscape fabric down. I'm able to reuse most of them. If not, I throw them in another hole for the iron.
